Indexing and searching a webpage of PDFs?

I belong to an association that publishes a quarterly newsletter. Present
and past issues are available as PDFs on a certain members-only page.

There is no search function on that page, nor is an index provided.

1) Is it possible to add a search function that could comb through the
PDFs, as it they were regular HTML pages?

2) Or might there be a nifty tool that I could aim at that page and build
an index? Or maybe download the PDFs and index them locally using some
nifty tool?

Thanks
